  1. I did the belt on my petrol 2.0i VW engine, piece of cake but I suppose the diesel engine is more complex. Cost me 17€ for the belt! I know that in the UK a friend paid in excess of £500 just recently for a service and cam belt change on a VW, at a main dealer.

    Luke 6:42 How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye. . . .[:P]


    Lol. Nice one.

    Log removed, well bit of a splinter really - guilty as charged.

    Well, I had an interesting event this morning which might suggest that interference can occur. I was talking to someone on the fone (an internet one) and switched off the Kindle as we were speaking. The fone was immediately cut off.

    Now, in the context of a plane, I just wonder what might be let loose.


    if it can turn a phone of when itself  is being turned of, what does it do to people whilst it's turned on? We're constantly being told the human brain is a very delicate thing...does anyone know if there will be long term effects? or is it the same as the WIMAX argument


    HSD I share your concern. I have it on good authority that a Kindle will scramble the brain if used excessivley, just as it will bring down an aircraft if used on takeoff. I have almost 30 years experience in electronics and interferance technology both with companies here and in the UK.

    The brain in particularly suseptical to the invisible radiation from the Kindle, more particularly if it has the 3G or WiFi enabled. Experiments conducted at the University of Pool suggest that the Kindle is only safe to use at a distance of no less that 1.5326 m (5.02821 feet) from your face. It was also found that by using the skullcap (designed and tested in Tokyo) and connected to a computer running a reverse interferance program can negate the problems with the Kindle. LINK

  5. [quote user="Chiefluvvie"]Hi - Boots Opticians - you can book on line or call +44 845 125 3752 - currently £10 (normally £20) for an eye test.

    For my glasses I order on line via Zennioptical.com in the USA. Really great choice, great price (about a third, or less of the price in France) and my specs arrived in 6 days from China via Fedex. Brilliant!


    I hope you are UK resident and not cheating the system.

  6. After being ripped-off by the opticians here in France we opted for buying our specs from best4glasses They are sooo cheap and fast, we are very pleased with the service and the huge amount we have saved over using the local opticians.

  7. Didn't know about that - good link, thank you.

  8. [quote user="Clair"][quote user="Jimmy"]So it is but

    link to prices would have been of interest don't you think?


    The site in question is a US-based and the post itself is in breach of the forum code of conduct, which is why the link was removed.

    Any further question about this, please contact a moderator by PM.

    Thank you.


    Thanks - it's nice to be told these things!
